White smoke

Land Rover AFRICA Magazine - - TECHNICAL -

My Tdi some­times blows white smoke out the ex­haust. I also have to top up coolant quite reg­u­larly. The ad­vice I got so far is tim­ing that is in­cor­rect and over fu­elling. What is your take on this? – grant ( boks­burg) ed – If the ve­hi­cle is over fu­elling then you would have ex­ces­sive black smoke leav­ing the ex­haust be­cause of un­burned fuel. The fact that you have to top up the coolant reg­u­larly makes me be­lieve that you have a blown head gas­ket be­tween a wa­ter port and ex­haust valve which blows steam out from the ex­haust.
